From September 2015 an exciting new partnership between the RSPB and the supermarket chain Aldi will mean your primary school can benefit from free, staff-led visits to our nature reserve!  Take part in a scientific study, go on a seasonal scavenger hunt, create a colourful collage, wear a wetland crown, or discover which creatures are staying or slipping away for the winter, plus many more hands-on activities.

Aldi are donating all revenue from the sale of their single use carrier bags to the RSPB, to help connect hundreds of thousands of children to nature across mainland UK.  This means that when you book a visit for your school to our nature reserve, your visit will be completely free of charge! Your only cost will be transport to and from the reserve.

Since it opened its first store in the UK in 1990, Aldi has always charged for carrier bags in an effort to reduce its environmental impact and encourage responsible use of resources by its customers. This new partnership means that the funds generated from the sale of these bags will help the RSPB to inspire the next generation about nature by providing them with first-hand experiences of wildlife.

To take advantage of this fantastic offer and get your class closer to nature with our fun, hands-on, curriculum linked activities, all you need to do is get in touch with us to book a date for your visit.

As this free offer is available to all schools we recommend you get in as quickly as possible in order to secure your place.
